If anyone is interested there is an artical on Lyme disease in the December issue of "O" magazine. That's Oprah's magazine. The artical is on page 163. There is a breif discription on lyme disease, and short paragraphs from both the IDSA, and ILADS camps. Dr.OZ has a short paragraph where he take some what of the high road, but does lean some to our side.

Thank you for writing your blog, it was inspirational to me. I too feel mine started with panic attacks, but in my 20's my gut was real bad and in my 30's panic attacks. I'm finally seeing a LLMD in December, hopefully he can read my WBlot test just fine. I've read good and bad reviews on him. I have a yeast issue too my doc said, he did a stool test. Do most lyme's people have yeast issues? Hugs to you and thanks for your blog. When you update again, I would like to read it. I tried to post on your blog, but it wouldn't let me, so I commented here.
Very mild left sided (could have fooled me with the "mild")  UC. Started and stopped LDN ON 1/25/09 to mid May no improvements. Tried Asacol, Pentesa, Colozol, Sulfasulsadine and Lialda, they made me worse. Supplements: Probiotics, multi, iron,Allimed Allicin, Apple Cider Vinegar, very low yeast/sugar/wheat  No UC meds at this time.

therearemiracles,

Awwww, you're sweet. I started blogging to keep track of my symptoms while on treatment but now, my doctor took me off because of elevated liver enzymes so I was feeling kinda down. I'm so glad it lifted your spirits. Knowing that makes me feel so much better.

I for one do not have yeast problems (confirmed via stool testing), despite being on abx for the last 6 months...maybe because I'm allergic to yeast and so my immune system aggressively attacks it?? I also take probiotics...

CajunGrl,

Ask your LLMD about using Milk Thistle to bring down your liver enzyme levels... IV milk thistle works very well for this purpose (my liver enzymes went from over 200 to normal in just a few weeks of usng the IV milk thistle)...make sure the compounding pharmacy makes it a water-soluble mix instead of an oil soluble mix...works better and faster...

Also maybe consider asking your LLMD if you can stay on the milk thistle when you add back the abx (make sure no interactions - ask your pharmacist) to protect the liver from the stress caused by Lyme die-off and the metabolites of the antibiotics.

Alternatively, could try glutathione precursors (N-Acetyl-Cysteine, etc.) or IV glutathione...

Good luck,
